magpie electricals

In the amazing episode, The Idiot's Lantern, the Wire takes over the store Magpie Electricals. Now, after that episode the name, owner, nor store had come up again. Just recently the episode, The Beast Below, premiered. And in the scene when Amy Pond decided to be adventurous and take a peek under the tent, there was a sign. A most ordinary and in the background sign. It read MAGPIE ELECTRICALS. Now, if I was the writer, I wouldn't just put that sign in there for no reason at all. It has to mean something...

...What do you think?

Personally, I don't think it means anything. I assumed it is supposed to be a "coincidence" and a wink to us obsessive fans who are bound to notice. Like the Doctor saying "Are you my mummy?" in 'Poison Sky', y' know?
